Capitol Chat - A loud and definitive "no" to Governor Jerry Brown from a three-judge panel on his request to remove the federal cap on California's prison population implemented two years ago by the U.S. Supreme Court. That news leads today's Capitol Chat and our Bureau Chief Ben Adler joins us to talk more about it. We'll also get an update on some of the bills lawmakers are working on.
Nevada Gun Laws - As a national gun debate roils on in the nation's Capitol there's a different battle over gun legislation taking place in Nevada's legislature. Nevada Republican state Senator Ben Kieckhefer is proposing a bill to restrict people deemed mentally ill by a psychiatrist from owning guns for three years. While some people think the bill is a no-brainer, it's getting heavy opposition from the National Rifle Association. We'll speak with Senior Editor of Opinion at the Sacramento Bee Dan Morain about his reporting on the battle to pass gun laws in Nevada and how that affects California.
Festival of the Arts - A new "Family Sunday Funday" on Sunday, April 14 is the centerpiece of an expanded Festival of the Arts at Sacramento State. Presented by the University's College of Arts and Letters, this year's festival runs through Wednesday, April 17 and will include more attractions to showcase the best of Sacramento State's arts programs, including a production of "Cabaret," jazz by "Saturday Night Live" trombonist and Sac State alumnus Steve Turre, and special exhibits in campus art galleries. We'll talk about the festival with Dean Edward Inch.
